Programs

Ours is a busy Chapter, focusing on conservation, education, mentoring and community outreach.  The chapter calendar is the best place to keep up what’s going on.

We urge you to stay involved in the chapter’s mission:  to conserve, protect and restore coldwater fisheries and their watersheds in the Western North Carolina region.

 In addition to our own programs, the Pisgah Chapter of Trout Unlimited provides funds and volunteers to assist with other programs serving people in our part of the state.

Casting Carolinas

Casting Carolinas provides an opportunity for women experiencing breast cancer to meet new friends, network, exchange information and have fun in a natural setting while learning the sport of fly fishing.

Rivercourse

For boys and girls ages 13-15, this camp emphasizes Trout Unlimited's mission - the conservation of cold water fisheries - while teaching campers the basics of fly fishing, a sport for a lifetime.

Project Healing Waters

Project Healing Waters is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled military personnel and veterans through fly fishing.

Adopt-a-Highway

Since 1998, the Pisgah Chapter has conducted quarterly cleanups of a 3-mile section of US 276 along the Davidson River.   Join us December 7th at 10am.

Davidson River Project

Since 2001, the Chapter has undertaken a long-term project of assessing, monitoring and remediating 11 miles of the Davidson River in Transylvania County.

Trout In The Classroom

Pisgah Chapter sponsors programs in eight schools where students raise trout from eggs, then release them in nearby streams.

Annual Flyfishing School

Considered one of the best schools in the Southeast, the school is offered each year in April at Harmon Field in Tryon, NC.  Many service opportunities are available.

Delayed-Harvest Stockings

In March, April, May, October and November each year, PCTU assists the NCWRC with stocking the Green River in Polk County and the Little River in DuPont State Forest.

Kids' Fishing Day

Chapter volunteers mentor students from our Trout-in-the-Classroom program, teaching them to fish in a generously-stocked pond.
